Many major security breaches have been encountered before LinkedIn. We’ve seen leaks of 500 million LinkedIn users before. This time it is thought that another terrible information leak happened in the case of LinkedIn. This time the information of about 700 million users has been leaked.
The publication called Restore Privacy has given details in this regard. They say a user on a popular hacking forum has claimed that he has information on 700 million LinkedIn users. Of the 700 million or 756 million users, 92 percent are believed to have leaked the data. The person further claims that the information he has is authentic and the information of the actual users. He wants to sell that information.
He has, for example, posted a user’s record in that forum in front of everyone. Analysis of that record shows that everything is the information of a true LinkedIn user. The fear is here. You too will be thrilled to know which information has been leaked.
The information it provides includes LinkedIn profile URLs and usernames. There is the full address of that person. There is his email address and even his phone number. The scariest thing is his physical address and Geo location, personal / professional experience, gender everything. Even to everyone’s surprise, it includes his salary. It also has the usernames and details of other social media accounts.
Although it does not have login details. Despite all this, LinkedIn has not yet officially released any information on the matter. Yet this kind of event makes us thrilled. It makes us think about the dangers that can come from the current internet.
